In a coffee shop

Alone but not.

Steaming hot liquid

Delectably addictive.

Surrounded by stories

Some fun, some gory.

Connected by threads

Invisible shreds.

Contented–

Indeed, life is splendid.

Town of Windsor’s Kindness Week

 

The Town of Windsor community is invited to participate in Windsor’s second annual Kindness Week February 11-17.  Residents are encouraged to kick off the New Year in a positive way.

The daily challenges include:

  • Sunday: Service Sunday, kick off the week with a good deed or act of service. Drop off donations for the Windsor Severance Food Pantry — nonperishable food items, diapers and other baby items, or school supplies — at Safeway and King Soopers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Monday: Senior Smiles, brighten the day of a Windsor senior citizen.
  • Tuesday: Reach Out and Write, connect with someone who has impacted your life. Printable note cards will be available on the Town of Windsor’s Facebook page (facebook.com/windsorgov).
  • Wednesday: Share the Love — Pay it Forward, extend kindness to others rather than a person that may have directly helped you.
  • Thursday: Thank an Educator, recognize a teacher, mentor, or school staff member that has made a difference.
  • Friday: Recognize First Responders and Veterans, thank you banners for Windsor first responders and veterans will be available to sign at the Community Recreation Center and Clearview Library.
  • Saturday: Neighborly Nod, do something kind for your neighbor — shovel their walk, bring them goodies, or just spend time together.

I love how the Town is promoting good deeds to others.  How awesome!

Residents are encouraged to share their stories on Windsor’s Facebook page.

Why I’m Running for Town Board…

0106181029b.jpgWhen I tell people I’m running for Windsor’s Town Board, I often get a quizzical look.

“Why?”

Well, I’ll tell you why.

First and foremost, it’s about giving back.  I’ve been so very blessed in my life, and I feel giving of my time, effort, and energy to the Town of Windsor would be something I could do to help others and continue to support such an amazing community I live in.

When we moved here almost three years ago, I knew almost immediately that this was a special place.  Something inside of me wanted to do something to show my appreciation and gratitude.  However, I had no idea how to begin (can we say Google 🙂 ).  Soon, I discovered the volunteer boards of the Town of Windsor and quickly signed on.  I have served on the Parks, Recreation & Culture Advisory Board here in Windsor and currently serve on the Board of Adjustment/Appeals.  These are wonderful places to learn more about our Town and great service opportunities.

Second, I think Windsor has done a great job in managing growth.  With my finance background, I see my role as ensuring Windsor grows fiscally responsibly and in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan.  My priorities include keeping the small-town feel and community of Windsor as we grow into one of the most desired and affordable places to live in Northern Colorado.  My door will always be open to my constituents and what they think and feel regarding Windsor’s policies moving forward.  Fostering community events, managing traffic and construction concerns, promoting more affordable housing and business growth, and maintaining quality education and amenities are my top priorities.

Third and finally, the time is right.  My kids are older and I have more of myself to give to others.  I’m eager to help, eager to serve, eager to listen, eager to make a difference in my community.

So here I am!!!  With the answer to your question.

I’m super excited for this opportunity and possibility of making a difference in others’ lives.  Please feel free to email me or comment below with anything on your mind!
